next permanent Coventry manager odds
The 2016-17 season of the championships of UK has already started to make victims between the managers of the teams. After the Italian manager of Swansea FC, Francesco Guidolin was saked on 3rd of October as a consequence of his team which did not impressed in the first 5 stages of the Premier League, an alarm signal has been pulled between the managers of the British teams of all levels.
But not only the top league of UK represents an area with managers’ seats that are not stable. A recently released place is the position of the Coventry City team manager. Coventry is playing this season in the League One and it hadn’t had a good start this season, they earned 9 points in the opening 11 stages, being ranked 24th at the moment, which is the last place of this league. As a result of this bad opening of season, Tony Mowbray, the manager of this team, resigned on 29th of September and without his intentions, he has started an exciting battle on the British media.
A part of the rumours have been disolved on 14th of October when Mark Venus was confirmed as the manager of the team until January 2017. Venus was interim for Coventry after Mowbray’s leaving and he was the one that led the team during their only victory this season against Port Vale and followed that up with a thrilling 3-1 Checkatrade Trophy win over Northampton Town. He said that "Yes, I like it, enjoy working with the boys. I enjoyed the two games I took charge and looked over so I’m enjoying it at the moment."
Even if for the moment the things look stable for the team of Coventry, the journalists from UK have already started to think about who is going to be the next permanent manager of this team. The first option is of course the current one, Mark Venus, but this option is very simple to predict as the 49-year-old is probably to keep his job if the results until January will be liked by the supporters and team owner and even more probably to leave if the results will be not improving.
Another name mentioned is Steve Evans. Evans, who has previously managed the likes of Crawley, Boston (twice), and Stamford, is one of the more colourful characters in the dugout, with his sporting of a sombrero a particular highlight. The last team that he managed is Leeds United, a team with which he resigner at the end of 2015-16 Championship season. Earlier on October, Evans was caught by www.coventrytelegraph.net watching Coventry’s victory against Port Vale.
Steve Cotterill has also been named. One thing is for sure, he would come in like a whirlwind and set about transforming the place overnight. He’s incredibly driven and gets results at this level but whether the limited budget would put him off is open to question. He got Bristol up on around £5million, significantly more than he’s be working on at Coventry where much of the cash has already been spent.
The 3 names mentioned are the main favorites to be the permanent manager of Coventry City but few chances are being held by Steve Cotterill, Richard Money, Kevin Keegan or Alan Curbishley.
